over town. we just heard a variety of the democrats bad mouthing mitt romney. last night michele obama did not mention mitt romney's name. the first half of her speech could have been from a conservative because it is personal responsibility and the second half about her husband and why shoohe should have the key to camp david four more years. >> so many people had a hand in our success. from the teachers who inspired us and the janitors who kept our school clean. barack refused to lits lis to folks who told him to leave health reform another day and another president. he didn't care whether it was easy to do politically. that's not how he was raised and i hear the determination in his voice he tells me. you will not believe what folks are going through. it is not right. we have to work to fix this and we have so much more to do. >> brian: i think she was strong. she was poise and delivered a great message and the delivers the young family growing nup the white house and needs more time. i thought one thing everybody talked about the mayor of san antonio. julian castro and i think when

. some speakers struck that tone. i think the major speakers did, particularly michelle obama. that was kind of a broad based address that would appeal more broadly to nonpolitical people. bill clinton to a certain degree. president obama was more like mitt romney. i think there was more preaching to the choir in those final night addresses by romney and obama than there was anything else. you have to do that too. you have to energize the base. i'll tell you again, what strikes me is how dug in people are this year. i don't think anything is going to change very much. this will be a close competitive contest, probably all the way to the end. >> they will be fighting it out all the way to the end. >> politics and foreign policy taking center stage during the final night of the democratic national convention. after a video narrated by tom hanks which highlighted the death of osama bin laden and the strength of the american military, a grouch veterans including some retired generals took the stage as the crowd said thank you. massachusetts senator and 2004 presidential candidate

to take north carolina off the table, but just this week paul ryan was campaigning there and michelle obama was campaigning there. that tells you that north carolina is still very much in play, as are many states. another pollster purple strategy is a combination. it's a bipartisan firm. they show that mitt romney's only up three percentage points in arizona. we see an expansion of the map potentially. >> it's a tight race. 243 electoral votes in obama's column and 191 in governor romney's with with 104 in the toss-up category. this is not a done deal for anyone that thinks it is. thank you for your time. these are new images over the anti-islam film that insulting the prophet mow haw mad. today more protests and people this time killed. plus -- >> you're going to see it swing back, and you watch. if mitt romney can take one punch after another from his own fist, because he keeps hurting himself, and this thing ties back up, you're going to have a lot of clenched people in the obama campaign. >> all right. you heard a little bit of what joe had to say. will that all come true? we'll g
this on television. let's liz listen. >> you had michelle obama and like lady gaga ask bill clinton like elvis and tonight justin bieber ask michael jackson and prince roll would up together. >> steve: they cancelled the big stadium but it was beautiful outside and not a cloud in the sky. not a rain cloud in the sky. >> gretchen: we'll do head lines for you. a true american hero killed trying to save a life. david nelson was visiting friend no, sir destroit when a car pulled up and start tod shoot a girl. nelson was killed . he earned a purple heart after being hit by enemy fire in iraq. >> steve: just like old times. except for hospital food. koch has been catching up with sphen year old peter balone. he is getting a stint put in koch set to go home later today. >> gretchen: there is a new food fight playing out in minnesota. stunes are outraged over the federal meal guide lines. and so on the chopping blook. cookies and old milk and rationing ketchup to one packet per stune. >> i plan on bringing a bag lunch. we are just play by ear. >> gretchen: the school blaming washington for the change.
the point, brian, to make about the security standards here. you can't go to a michelle obama campaign event without showing your i.d somehow these guys are traipsing in and out of the white house and, of course, i've been reporting on the incomplete nature of these white house visitor logs for so long, i discovered this guy's name and it turned up that he has visited in march. where is the lap dog media talk being this? one more point about this guy, he turns out to be a major funder of the center for constitutional rights. that is the left wing law firm that has sprung so many gitmo detainees and has been proud of it and guess what? one of the detainees that they're responsible for springing is kumu, the guy who is now considered the lead suspect in the benghazi attacks. full circle. if you don't collect the dots, you can't connect the dots. >> gretchen: there has been much made about the differing opinions and reasoning given by the obama administration about what actually happened there. so at first it was not a terrorist attack. then jay carney said that it was an obvious terrorist atta
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol

a specific thing they wanted to do. michelle obama did the character. bill clinton did the unprecedented economic argument. and then president obama did the, you know, hey, the -- made the case for looking forward. each night seemed to have a theme that fit together. look at tampa. you did not have the same thing. it was all about trying to fix the likability ratings, but not a lot of memorable specific details for instance on what a mitt romney presidency would look like. >> yeah. and democrats have been chiding the republicans for not putting more meat on the bones on their ideas. on the other hand, the president's advisers promised there would be specifics in the speech. did you hear any new policy or substance? >> i heard nothing new. more of a -- you know, look, the incumbent trying to make the don't change horses in midstream and making the case that the same ideas he's been advocating that haven't been passed. he will now push to try to them be passed. you didn't hear, you know what, this is going to be how we'll deal with the debt and deficit or entitlement reform or how we'll de
simpson's guest editor. readers requested her. >> we had michelle obama in august which was amazing and who else would you like to hear from? jessica simpson tops the list. talking about how she's trying to lose the baby weight. getting very personal about her relationship, including with her fiance eric johnson and today it's all about style. style icons, her mother. also says bridget bardot. whenever she goes out to the red carpet, looks at some old photos and tries to match her look so it's really exciting. >> let's get to the stuff we love and terry loves it as well. tell us how these were chosen by the winners starting off with jeans, and they love levis. >> levis curve i.d., everyone has difficulty finding the screens that work for your body. >> it's hard. >> here you can go online or in the store. you identify your shape, answering questions such as how curvy is your seat, and then -- >> this one are you pear-shaped or apple-shaped? >> i know. you're supposed to come up with one of four styles that will work for you. one of our editors in fact said she broke up with her muffi
that same fund raiser. president obama said beyonce is the best role model. and later on michelle that was the couch was the best place for obama to sleep . ♪ ♪ no i don't understand. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> steve: the post office can't balance the books. increase the number of sales pitches. armed officers dropping from chappers and taking terrorist in custody it was not real. it was a nypd drill. college students enrolled in the nypd cadet core were the hostages. only a drill. >> gretchen: thank you, brian. democrats are claiming that president obama is the best candidate for women voters? >> president obama has walked with america's women and helped women in this country fight for equal pay, for equal work. and he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care. that's what my husband stands for. >> so they claim republicans are waging a war on women. whoo do women actually think? joining me co-author of the book. liberty, no war on women. sabrina schaffer. >> thanks for having me. >> gretchen: it seems they were trying to fi
, four, four. michelle, why do you give it four? >> because it fits exactly into obama has strategy, which is to talk about everything but his record on the economy. so this fits perfectly. another perfect distraction from the 14% unemployment, 2 million people looking for job, smallest work force in 30 years. so of course, it's a great strategy for him. i also agree with the line that if you're separating people by demographics and class and division that you're probably not ready to be president. which is funny 'cause that's exactly what president obama has been doing for his past four years. >> steve: all of the irony. you gave it four as well. >> yeah. i think it plays in exactly what i'm talking about. it's the use of the words entitlements, handout, people on the take. there are a lot of hard working americans who aren't on the take that get lumped in where they're -- you're going to see more of them. and on the separation, romney is the one that gives -- he's never had a tough day in his life. >> we don't know that. >> from working. i'm talking about financial day. i think th
coordinated. >> steve: michelle, clearly romney's statement was devastating to the president of the united states where he said, you know, you can't have the embassy sending out these apology notes because it was devastating to obama because now the main stream media is screaming bloody murder. >> yeah, that's right. and just to take this more bigger picture, you've got this petty, partisan, sniping left dog media and they cannot see the bigger picture here. and provide the proper context in reporting on what's going on in the middle east now. here they are all fixated on terry jones, they're falling for the propaganda of these islamic imperialists when it has nothing to do with this obscure internet video, clips of which have been floating around since june. the providence of which is still under question. and they report it anyway as if that's what's really going on here when there is a larger pretext going on and manufacturing. the fact that they still call these protests when these are violent attacks that have been happening. >> brian: when the coptic christians were having their chur
